Nat had told Kit that he wanted to visit her uncle before leaving. "Why though?" Kit had asked herself in her head. Kit doubt that Nat was going to ask permission to leave because he isn't that kind of person. Then Kit realized. Nat wanted to ask her uncle for her hand and marriage.
Kit hadn't realized until they were right in front of her Uncle's home. Nat knocked on his door and Aunt Rachel came to open it. Nat explained he wanted to talk to her Uncle for something. Aunt Rachel led them to the living room and called Uncle Matthew to come to the living room because someone wanted to talk to him. Matthew came and asked him, "What do you want?" Nat went straight to the point and said," I want Kit's hand and marriage." "Are you fine with this Kit?"Asked Matthew. Kit hesitated a moment and then replied with, "Yes." "Come on, let's go," said Nat already starting to leave.
Kit followed Nat onto the Witch and they left Wethersfield on it. When the Witch reached the ocean, Nat called Kit to come out on the deck and look. Kit walked out looked at the wide, vast ocean. Kit thought what Hannah said to her. "There is no escape without love." Kit now felt love and knew what she meant. Nat was love.
